C100: Issue with duplicate recording

Hi all,

 

I've owned a C100 for a few months now and love it! I recently shot a conference and noticed something very peculiar:

 

Once I offloaded all my footage into Premiere Pro I noticed that for many clips it had recorded the same clip up to 4 times in a row, with different names (i.e. the same clip would end up being 00002.MTS, 00003.MTS, 00004.MTS, 00005.MTS). Naturally this ate up the memory on my SD cards fast. These duplicate clips were on the same SD card, not duplicates created on the card in the second slot.

 

To confirm I did NOT have dual slot recording on, I did activate relay recording so that it would switch automatically to the next card if need be.

 

Any thoughts as to what might be going on??

 

Thank you!

 

Sean

I had the same problem a couple of days ago. Today the clips didn't duplicate, but it cut a 12min take into 2 clips which is really frustrating. Did you ever find out what was going on?

No idea yet! I'm going to try turning off relay recording (both set to NO) and see if that helps. Also I haven't updated any of the firmware yet. Any idea if that helps?

Just a quick follow up. Someone provided this link on another forum and it totally makes sense: http://www.dvxuser.com/V6/showthread.php?314634-Strange-duplicate-files

 

Not sure what your workflow is like but this could very well be the issue. I just dump the whole folder from the SD card to my hard drive and start importing through Premiere.

Re: C100: Issue with duplicate recording

We had the same problem on a C300. Shot several interviews and the files were duplicated on the CF card so it was recorded that way and was not during import. Files were duplicated 3-5 times. Strange thing was we shot b-roll after the interviews and none of those files were duplicated.
